“Can I touch your butt” in Elvish.

This is so useful

No, this is not “Can I touch your butt” in Elvish. This is “Can I touch your butt?” in English, transcribed using the letters of the Elvish alphabet. There is a difference. 
In Elvish, the letters of the alphabet correspond to sounds, not to words. The above text spells it out using one symbol to represent one letter of the original English, which is incorrect:
c-a-n  i  t-o-u-c-h  y-o-u-r  b-u-t-t
If you really want to spell out an English phrase using the Elvish alphabet, you would do so phonetically, which would basically equate to one symbol per phoneme (sound):
c-a-n  a-i  t-u-ch  y-o-r  b-u-t
If you actually wanted to write “Can I touch your butt?” in Elvish, one (very rough) translation would be:

Annog nin daf pladan tele ci?

Which, in Sindarin Elvish, roughly translates to, “Would you give me permission to touch your rear?”
Written in tengwar (the Elvish alphabet), it would look like this:

Sorry for the blurry quality.

damn, the lotr fandom doesnt fuck around

wow

not to mention LOOK HOW POLITE THIS WAS

The other day I went to a yard sale I saw advertised in the laundromat window (I saw it as I was walking back from the post office, where I mailed a cover letter and résumé, cross your fingers for me!). I just meant to get a salt shaker and new computer speakers, but there was this kind of industrial-looking old electric machine for $25. I hemmed and hawed for a while because I live with my mother in a very small Victorian house and there is no room for anything else - there is no room for what we already have. I also work 10-15 hours a week and should not be buying anything. But in the end I gave in, figuring I could at least sell it for what I paid somewhere, especially if I could explain more details about the model and history.

I found out that it’s a 1941 Singer 99, and the crinkle (or Godzilla) finish - which I took to mean it was a cheap/bulk industrial model - is actually somewhat rare. It’s seen on models produced during and after the war years, and while it looks like something related to wartime shortages, it isn’t really, although it might have been a marketing scheme: “Buy a rough-looking Singer, you shouldn’t have fancy things right now, there’s a war on!” IDK.

In the afternoon I tried it out and had a lot of tension issues, but this morning Mom and I worked on it, took it apart in a few places, cleaned it some, etc. and it seems to be working very well, as you can see! The light bulb burnt out when I first tried to turn it on, but I have very good eyes so it’s not an issue right now. The motor works, the pedal works, the cord is a little gross in the way that plastics get after decades but still whole. I do still intend to sell it (the crinkle finish seems to be collectible), but I will probably be using it for a while. These cast iron machines hold up very well - someday we’re going to have to fix up our inherited 1871 Singer 12 treadle machine, it needs a couple of parts as well as cleaning, but there are plenty of people today who still do their sewing with a treadle!

Some sites I’ve been using to learn about, run and/or work on the machine:

Steve Rogers did, in fact, realize that something was off when he saw the outline of the woman’s odd bra (a push-up bra, he would later learn), but being an officer and a gentleman, he said that it was the game that gave the future away.

No, see, this scene is just amazing. The costume department deserves so many kudos for this, it’s unreal, especially given the fact that they pulled off Peggy pretty much flawlessly.

1) Her hair is completely wrong for the 40’s. No professional/working woman  would have her hair loose like that. Since they’re trying to pass this off as a military hospital, Steve would know that she would at least have her hair carefully pulled back, if maybe not in the elaborate coiffures that would have been popular.

2) Her tie? Too wide, too long. That’s a man’s tie, not a woman’s. They did, however, get the knot correct as far as I can see - that looks like a Windsor.

3) That. Bra. There is so much clashing between that bra and what Steve would expect (remember, he worked with a bunch of women for a long time) that it has to be intentional. She’s wearing a foam cup, which would have been unheard of back then. It’s also an exceptionally old or ill-fitting bra - why else can you see the tops of the cups? No woman would have been caught dead with misbehaving lingerie like that back then, and the soft satin cups of 40’s lingerie made it nearly impossible anyway. Her breasts are also sitting at a much lower angle than would be acceptable in the 40’s.

Look at his eyes. He knows by the time he gets to her hair that something is very, very wrong.

he know he’d go to jail, but he put human decency before his own freedom and called out this disgusting sexual perversion.

Well, I couldn’t stand waiting any longer so I ended up piecing this pattern together in photoshop with my laptop trackpad. Frustrating but WORTH IT!! Now I can do what I really want to do and get started with the process of getting it printed on silk scarves. I’m probably gonna order a test swatch first, but keep a look out for preorders in the next few weeks!
